I have had the pleasure of reviewing a couple of Eldon Taylor’s books in the past. What I have found with Eldon’s books is that they will make you a little uncomfortable and they will make you think about reality a little more closely. Gotcha! The Subordination of Free Will is a book that fits that previous mold.
There is no shortage of information and messages that come your way on a daily basis. I read not too long ago that they average person consumes the equivalent of 178 newspapers per day worth a content. That’s a lot of damn content.
With all the messages that you are being presented with, how do we discern between what’s real and what isn’t? I don’t know about you but I seem to get inundated on Facebook with so-called truths.
Here’s the quote: “It is not necessary to believe in God to be a good person. In a way, the traditional. Notion of God is outdated. One can be spiritual but not religious. It is not necessary to go to church and give money — for many, nature can be a church. Some of the best people in history do not believe in God, while some of the worst deeds were done in His name.”
I have seen this show up on Facebook a dozen times with people getting excited about this but the fact is that Pope Francis never said this. How many people believe that he did?
Gotcha! is thought provoking although I found the book a little scattered feeling. It tends to feel a little too all inclusive of issues that we need to think more about as society and it’s not a highly focused book. I actually think his older books that I have reviewed Self Hypnosis and Subliminal Technology and Choices and Illusions are little more focused and a little better written.
If you don’t love the state of politics and the general behavior of Americans in the United States, I think this book will really resonate with you and will be something that you enjoy.
